The band’s official archivist David Lemieux explains the significance of the packed stadium show and the band’s lively rendition of the much-covered New Orleans song in the video’s description in saying,

“One of the largest crowds to see the Grateful Dead perform live in the 1980s and 1990s, at the last-ever concert at Philadelphia’s JFK Stadium, the July 7, 1989 audience was treated with one of the best shows of 1989, a year that’s widely considered one of the most consistently great of the Dead’s 30 year touring history. Opening with Hell In A Bucket, the band then jumped right into their unofficial party anthem, a song that was always certain to get everyone up and dancing: Iko Iko. This staple of the New Orleans sound at which the Dead were adept at playing was always a buoyant, ebullient entry in any Grateful Dead setlist. As you’ll see in the video, the band has much fun playing it on this night as we all had dancing to it.”

The performance of “Iko Iko”, along with the Dead’s entire July 7th, 1989 concert was highlighted in full on the official archival release of Crimson, White & Indigo live album, which arrived back in 2010. The concert was also the band’s selection for the 2018 edition of their annual “Meet-Up At The Movies” event broadcasted in movie cinemas across the country.
